Stepping up to the crease to fundraise for the McGrath Foundation
On Sunday 24 February, the Broadspectrum Bashers took on the Gippsland Water Mighty Ducks in a nail-biting Pink Stumps Day 20/20 cricket match.
Now in its second year, the Broadspectrum vs Gippsland Water Pink Stumps Day was initiated by HSE Advisor Kerrianne Hohn. Kerrianne saw the event as an opportunity to foster team building and inclusion across the Broadspectrum and Gippsland Water businesses, while raising funds for a worthy cause.
Twenty-four Broadspectrum staff members participated in this year's Pink Stumps Day, bringing with them a cheer squad of family and friends. The Gippsland Water team took this year's title by five runs.
Aaron Massaro, Contract Manager at Gippsland Water said: "There were two sides during the match, but ultimately we're all part of one team. The big winner on the day was the McGrath Foundation, with over $11,000 dollars raised."
The McGrath Foundation will use the funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia, making a real difference to families experiencing breast cancer.
Since 1996, Broadspectrum has worked with Gippsland Water to service 140,000 residents and large industry and agribusiness customers. We are responsible for delivering water and wastewater to 41 towns across the Gippsland region, providing a 24-hour mechanical, electrical and instrumentation maintenance services. We also deliver a range of asset renewals, minor capital works, professional and administrative services to ensure the business always runs smoothly.
